3rd Brigade Combat Team Welcomes New Commander

 

The 3rd Brigade Combat TeamFort Campbell, KY – The 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) held a change of command ceremony on Friday June 17th, 2011, Colonel Viet Luong relinquished command to Col. R.J. Lillibridge before the entire brigade.

The change of command ceremony is rooted in military history dating back to the 18th century during the reign of Frederick the Great of Prussia. At that time, organizational flags were developed with color arrangements and symbols unique to each particular unit. To this flag and its commander, the soldiers of the unit would dedicate their loyalty and trust. When a change of command takes place, the flag is taken from the outgoing commander and then passed to the individual assuming the command by their superior officer. This gesture is done in front of the unit so that all could see and witness their new leader assuming his dutiful position. He who holds the flag also holds the soldier’s allegiance. This symbolic tradition has survived throughout military history.

Col. R. J. Lillibridge accepts the Brigade colors from 101st Airborne Division Commander Maj. Gen. John F. Campbell
